Stat Dropping Made Easy!

If you want to sound erudite in any edusetting you must be ready with a quick stat to drop about comparative education data. Serious pros combine the stat dropping with some name dropping, for instance, “As I was just remarking to Warren last week in Jackson Hole, when you look at how U.S. education spending per capita compares with industrial peer nations…” I’ve seen this move deployed by lefties, centrists, and conservatives, it’s a gambit with diverse appeal and surely you’ve seen this move in action. But how do people pull it off in such a seemingly effortless way? Easy. They read the big OECD compendium of indicators and you should too!
